Hello, I’m Ella, and I specialise in working with people who are having trouble with a relationship or with their life direction. You might be feeling lonely in a relationship or having difficulty finding someone you can relate to. Perhaps you're struggling with a partner, spouse, sibling, friend, or colleague and you want to talk to someone impartial and unconnected to your situation. You might suspect some of your difficulties stem from how you feel about yourself, resulting in low self-esteem, anxiety, or depression. Maybe you're worried about how these matters are impacting you long-term or others.
Working compassionately and skilfully using a robust integration of evidence-based treatments, I draw on core, tried-and-tested psychological principles such as how relationships influence our sense of wellbeing and self (Attachment and Relational Theory) and how therapy can create positive, lasting changes on a neurological level (Affective Neuroscience). My focus is on helping you address feelings of stress, anger, sadness, or conflict as well as providing you with an open, protected, non-judgemental space to explore whatever you feel you most need to right now. Working together, you will likely notice the emergence of various helpful mental, emotional, and behavioural processes such as deeper insight, a sense of being truly heard, seen, and supported, inner growth, and the discovery of healthier, more flexible ways of living your life.
Together, we can form a therapeutic alliance which will help you to move through those difficulties currently standing in your way. As an experienced, empathic therapist, I have a profound interest in you and what's happening for you right now. Please feel free to contact me to arrange your free initial telephone consultation.
